It may be spring in Ohio, but we miss our favorite place on Sanibel. This guesthouse, hidden on a lush corner across from Bowman's Beach, was the idyllic location for a relaxing visit to the island.
It was only a few minutes from everything we like to do. We loved riding our bikes to Sunset Grill for delicious breakfasts, then pedaling to Bowman's Beach for afternoons of hunting shells, watching the dolphin, and soaking up the sun. Many evenings we packed a picnic and walked back to the beach to see the beautiful sunsets.
Because the guesthouse (with its wonderful owner) was located on the peaceful west end of the island, we felt as if we were living in paradise, not staying at a tourist destination. When we did want to go to the theater, the golf course, the art show, or the refuge, we didn't have to get tangled up in island traffic. Matter-of-fact, we could actually pick up a lot of groceries & supplies at the Santiva General Store right down the road. We also had a lot of fun watching the Super Bowl with friends at the popular Doc Ford's restaurant, which is really close to the guesthouse.
We would definitely recommend this charming rental to other island lovers. It has everything you need and is located in the perfect place.
I can't believe I'm saying this -- but I'm looking forward to winter and our next visit to this tropical treasure:)
